So I never did blog about the weekend before Thanksgiving. Movies and plays. Oh my!
It started with a Friday night trip to Sherman Oaks where I met up with Angelique for a screening of Harry Potter 7.1. I'd read the book, she hadn't. Frankly, neither of us were super impressed. As I expected, it moved rather slowly. That's the thing with the books, the first half is usually rather slow, and the second half is where the excitement is. When you break a book in half, you're going to get a slow first half. And that's definitely the case here. But I expect the final movie to be a fun, fast paced ride come July.
Then Saturday, my roommates and I headed down to Glendale Centre Theatre where we met up with Angelique to see A Murder is Announced. I'd never read the book, so I was confused until the end. A great job with the mystery. And the cast was great. I just love going to that theater. The performances are always great and the small, center theater aspect makes you feel like it is happening right there. I wish I had started going when I'd first heard about it. Think of all the great plays I've missed.
